066 – Jonathan Gold – Exploring The Potential Of Kambo


Could the poison from an Amazonian frog improve mental performance?

With its centuries-long history of use in Peru and Brazil as a tool for hunting and healing, the ceremonial use of Kambo shows promise for mental, emotional, and physical health…

But the scientific jury is still out on whether or not the effects are real and measurable.

However, Jonathan Gold of Planet Kambo has experienced it himself, and he’s a firm believer. In fact, he’s made it his mission to share Kambo with the world.

Inside this episode, Jonathan shares how the practice has helped him and his clients gain a performance edge. Click play to catch the story.

3 Key Points

  1. Before trying Kambo, be sure to check in with your doctor. Reported benefits include a physical and mental boost, as well as a ‘detox’ effect on the emotions and the body, but unpleasant side effects are possible.
  2. The Kambo ceremony includes using a hot stick to make tiny burns on the skin, where the substance is applied. This is said to induce an immune reaction in the body, which feels like an intense flu that lasts under an hour, supposedly flushing the digestive system, liver, and gallbladder.
  3. After the Kambo experience, practitioners have reported increased perceptive acuity, mental clarity, a feeling of wellbeing and cleansing, as well as an immune boost, leading to enhanced performance in high-stress situations.
